The Weatherings


I collect postcards concentrating mainly on old ships and liners.  Links to the postcards I have collected  are below.  My postcards are also categorized by Publisher and Series - so follow the links below as appropriate.  I am trying to ensure all my postcards are 'of the period' and not reproductions, therefore I am mainly collecting those that have been postally used.  The messages are often just as fascinating as the ships themselves, and I have included information on the ships and their history as well as specific details about the postcards.   If you find any errors, or can provide any translations for the ones written in German, French or Japanese - please let me know!!   I also  have pages showing ships that I have not been able to identify, and would be grateful for any help.    Please use my Guest Book page to contact me
